  1. Love how healthy this is. Have never had fruit soup before and found it both sweet and tangy. Love crystallized ginger and after trying the soup add just a little more. If you have never tried fruit soup before and are looking for a change to you normal morning fruit or a sweet and tangy dessert this is worth a try.
  2. Made for ZWT4...This was wonderful!!! I had all the fruit on hand to make it so I threw it together. The kids and I loved it. I used cantaloupe since I cannot seem to pick out a good honeydew.
  3. often make this type of dessert in the summer(I askip the ginger for myself-as Idon't like it)but use it for guests and the mint make it extra refreshing.As I have quite a few friends who are diabetic this is a great standby.
  4. Like Rita, I skipped the sugar as the melon and strawberries were wonderfully sweet. Had this as a light refreshing dessert after a spicy meal. The yogurt and citrus come together with the ginger giving it a little zip. I garnished mine with the sour cream and a little more ginger as mint is not an herb we care for too much. We enjoyed it to the last drop.
  5. I made this with my Crystallized ginger "Candied" recipe #102933. I skipped the sugar it didn`t need it. And being a Diabetic recipe I would think it should be skipped. The juice is a beautiful soft orange color. It had a nice tang which absorbed into the fruit. I ginger did fall to the bottom so I suggest saving some for the garnish. Paula, Thanks for a refreshing delightful soup!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
